Woolworths Walkerville, SA
Duration: June 2012 to April 2013
Value: $16 million
Contract type: AS 4000 Lump Sum
Summary: Built Environs constructed a 6,500 m2 retail precinct, including basement car parking, for Woolworths and 12 specialty retailers in the inner Adelaide suburb of Walkerville.
The project team overcame numerous challenges to successfully deliver this project on time. As the site had been excavated by a developer years prior, the recent works needed to start immediately, leaving little time to procure trades. The tight programme required a focus on long lead-time items, such as lifts and travelators.
Furthermore, building on each boundary of the site left little room for constructing the building, so the team made use of surrounding roadways, while facilitating a safe, high quality and on time outcome for Woolworths.
The centre opened for trade in April 2013.
